Spam Phishing alert warning

Overnight I got this email allegedly from iFixit to my Yahoo email address.

Of course I didn't click the links within the email as it is an obvious phishing attempt.

I do not, never have, used my Yahoo account when contacting iFixit so that was the first clue.

Watch out everyone and do not click on links within emails unless you are 100% sure of the sender.

So why did it go to my Yahoo address? That's what triggered my scare.

It's far as I know ifixit never had my Yahoo address.

I have always used my work address now defunct or the email address you have replied to.

Hey Jeff,

This email is legitimate. Sorry for the scare!

We started a meta thread over here:

Yahoo has discontinued the login service we used
